Yoga Punx is committed to making yoga accessible to all people-we remove the financial and physical barriers of studio access. Come as you are - be yourself!   ALL are welcome, and we play kick ass music!


Yoga is an ancient system of breathing practices, physical  postures, and meditation intended to integrate the practitioner’s body, mind, and spirit.

The word yoga comes from a Sanskrit word, yukti , and means “union” or “yoke.” The various physical and mental disciplines of yoga were seen as a method for individuals to attain union with the divine.   A way to achieve freedom.
